Display

Average Display Diagonal

The KHX20BBGSFDI has a fairly standard display diagonal (3 inches) compared to most of the other cameras of this spec and age.

We compared all the other 3" screen cameras to this digital camera and we think the EOS 7D (£579.99), the EOS 5D Mark II, and the EOS 1Ds Mark III all from Canon which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If this digital camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the Pentax K-3 (£585.62) (3.2" and higher rated), or the Nikon D600 (£913.70) (3.2" and higher rated).
